Well-posedness of one-way wave equations and absorbing boundary conditions. (English) Zbl 0618.65077

A method for constructing one-way wave equations is suggested. A one-way wave equation is a partial differential equation which in some sense behaves like the wave equation in one direction but permits no propagation in the opposite one. The authors investigate conditions under which the initial value problem for the one-way wave equations and the initial-boundary value problem for the two-dimensional wave equation in the domain \(x\geq 0\), \(t\geq 0\) with one-way equations as boundary condition are well posed.
